Simply the best sushi restaurant in town. A wide selection of dishes from classical sushi to more experimental dishes. If you don't like sushi or seafood the offering is limited.

Had takeaway dinner from this restaurant, ordering was swift and on time for pick up. It looked fancy, but did not taste that fancy. The rice was a bit dry and it seemed to me that it might have been made earlier that evening, kinda...More

The lunch was good, the restaurant host was extremely pleasant. As of the sushi, well, the classic sushi were basic but very good and the rolls were, um.... unusual. Canned tuna (or what it was?) is probably not something I would expect there as well...More

We have been so happy earlier with Food Asylum so we went with the normally high expectations on our national day. I always order the tempura gorgeous to 189 kroner as my favorite dish. Tempura this time was very full of oil, rice seemed poorly...More
